#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST • “I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it.”—David Brooks With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues”—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed. Looking to some of the world’s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade. Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth. “Joy,” David Brooks writes, “is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes.” Praise for The Road to Character “A hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story.”—The New York Times Book Review “David Brooks—the New York Times columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name—offers the building blocks of a meaningful life.”—Washingtonian “This profound and eloquent book is written with moral urgency and philosophical elegance.”—Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon “The voice of the book is calm, fair and humane. The highlight of the material is the quality of the author’s moral and spiritual judgments.”—The Washington Post “A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin.”—The Guardian (U.K.) “This learned and engaging book brims with pleasures.”—Newsday “Original and eye-opening . . . At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts.”—USA Today “There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others.”—Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker From the Hardcover edition.

What Kids Want—And Need—From Parents is truly a seminal book in parenting. It begins with one man’s 50-year journey to discover a better way to prepare American kids for life and culminates with the amazing discovery: the biggest factor in children’s success in life turns out to be dependent on how their parents deal with their own childhood! Teacher Joe Gauld sets out to change American education in the 60s, founding the Hyde School in Bath, Maine, committed to the idea every student is gifted with a unique potential. But by tracking Hyde graduates in life, he finds parenting a much larger influence on their later lives than schooling. So in 1974, he begins a program to regularly address parental growth and family issues. Hyde’s extraordinary ability to bond family and school receives national media attention, and Hyde grows into a network of seven private and public schools, plus a national Hyde Biggest Job® parent program. Joe increasingly centers his work on families, finding parenting heavily influenced by how parents were raised. So parents’ learning how to effectively deal with both the negative as well as the positive aspects of their upbringing becomes critical to effective parenting. Joe carefully leads the reader through this dynamic and ground-breaking parenting process. While my family’s three years at Hyde was a struggle, it forced me to open my eyes and eventually it changed my life. In retrospect, I wish I had the benefit of Joe Gauld’s wisdom earlier. Our role as a parent and mentor is to draw out and demand our children’s best. It requires that we make the same demand of ourselves, and there are powerful obstacles. Joe Gauld uses his family and other Hyde families as case studies that show us how to overcome these obstacles and establish meaningful bonds with our children. I’ve said many times that the world would be a better place if we all had the benefit of a Hyde experience. A good place to start is to absorb the wisdom in WHAT KIDS WANT—AND NEED—FROM PARENTS. - Robert Krebs, Former CEO, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroads Today more than ever before, experts understand the overriding primacy of emotional dispositions to student outcomes. A smaller, but still significant number, has grasped that student dispositions are largely determined by those of their parents. But only Joe Gauld has realized, tested and proved that the essential requirement for rapid and lasting student character development and scholastic improvement is parents who are diligently working to improve their own emotional intelligence. Through this indispensable book you’ll be inspired and empowered to do the most satisfying soul-work of your life, with the promise that you and your kids will be smarter, happier and more loving. - Raz Ingrasci, President,Hoffman Institute Foundation The essential leadership role of parents in any family is to be a mentor for the children, always holding standards high. Joe Gauld has captured all the elements necessary to build strong, deep and lasting bonds between parents and children. If you want to lead your children to a life of purpose and excellence, start with this book. - Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Management, University of Southern California (and former Hyde parent.)
